“You can’t destroy that song, sweetie. Very predictable. Bad to the bone. You definitely don’t have the X-Factor.”
These are a few choice words from Britney Spears in a new promo for The X-Factor, giving notorious harsh critic Simon Cowell a run for his money. Fellow judges Demi Lovato and Antonio ‘L.A.’ Reid, we assume, will be the nicer of the four.
This isn’t Spears’ first diva-like turn on the singing competition. The pop singer has reportedly walked off set multiple times, specifically whenever a hopeful contestant tries to sing (read: butcher) one of her hit songs. Harsh or not, though, we must say it is nice to see Spears speaking her mind. Following the past few years of restricted interviews and limited public appearances, it’s safe to say the “it’s Britney, bitch!” Britney is creeping her way in. The X-Factor premieres Wednesday, September 12 on Fox. – Christian Allaire
